Dear friends of Empower Missions,

It’s 2018, and that means that we are one year closer to the Lord’s return!

In 2017, our team have been preaching and teaching in churches, at mission schools, and at conferences around the world: Norway, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Romania, Peru, Australia…
Wherever we go and whatever we do, our mission is two-fold:

  1. Seeking to inspire, support and help the church to fulfill its mission.
  2. Reaching the world with God’s last message – The three angel’s messages, as stated in Revelation 14.

Last year, the Lord opened up the door for me to preach in several churches in Spanish. One of these churches was in Peru. It is always amazing to see how the Lord can work through simple human beings, willing to be used by Him. I joined a church for door to door one Sabbath. The church was doing a week of prayer, and this was the last day. Many of the members had been fasting, and they wanted to finish off this week with outreach. Within only 1 hour of door to door work, my outreach team of 3 met several interested people, and we found people that were just waiting for someone to come and tell them about Jesus, someone that would listen to them, and minister to their needs. Two of them visited the local church in the evening for the first time, another one wanted to visit later. This is just a simple example of what God does when we follow our Savior’s footsteps “to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10)

Our Websites

As most of you know we have three websites (the main one is www.empowermissions.org).

A big percentage of the visitors come through search engines. The top month of visitors last year was in October with almost 14 000 visits – only on the main website. Praise the Lord!

We get messages from people with Bible questions, prayer requests, and others that simply share a testimony and their appreciation for the work and resources.

Here are some brief testimonies:

I can see The Holy Spirit guiding you. I pray for your Ministry, for you and for your families. Please continue with your efforts to bring light to the world through your web ministry – There are lots of young persons hungry for the Spiritual truth in the word of God to reach. (L.L., Mexico)

Amen for this message because some of us we were just playing without knowing that the world is going to the end. (L.A.)

I am gladly reading and sharing the message of hope with friends who are looking for the soon coming of our Saviour. I will be grateful if I can be subscribed to the newsletters and other available materials. (Uganda)


Last year we taught at a couple of mission schools. It is always a blessing to spend time together with other Christians, eager to learn, and share the word of God with the world.

Thank you Christian for the time you spent with us! I hope God continues to guide your ministry because it’s really good all the knowledge you are sharing. (Student)

I’m truly blessed for all the things that I learnt during this week! Thank you very much! May God send the Holy Spirit upon you! (Student)

Saved to Serve

I want to finish with one encouraging testimony from United States:

Thank you for your ministry and the blessing it is and continues to be. Thank you for continually pointing us to Jesus and back to the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy.

Dear friends, thank you very much for all your prayers, and for your financial support!

As I read the news, and look around myself, there is no doubt that we are living in the last days. I want to use my talents, time and resources to hasten Christ’s coming, how about you?

If you want to further God’s work through Empower Missions, you may give either a one time or monthly donation.

May God lead all of us closer to Him this year, and may we together hasten His return.
